Two players and each of the ACC’s nine head coaches met with the media for the conference’s Annual Football Kickoff at Wild Dunes on the Isle of Palms in South Carolina. TheACC.com presented questions from fans to all of the players and coaches in attendance. There were over 80 audio files recorded at the event. Below are some of the questions answered by Georgia Tech’s George O’Leary, George Godsey and Nick Rogers.
You can listen to the complete selection of Yellow Jacket audio clips by visiting TheACC.com’s 2001 ACC Football Kickoff page. On the page you will also find audio files from the other eight ACC schools and a link to ACC Commissioner John Swofford’s Forum with the media.
To listen to the audio files you will need Windows Media Player. A free copy can be downloaded here.

|George O’Leary|| With the tremendous talent you’ve signed at quarterback the past 2 recruiting seasons, are you looking at moving some of these guys to different positions to take advantage of their athleticism?|
Keith – Hartselle, Ala.
|George Godsey|| Aside from the ultimate goal of winning the ACC and winning the Rose bowl, what personal goal do you have for yourself as you enter the season. For instance, Joe Hamilton had a goal to not throw an interception for the entire season. Or, what area would you like to see the most improvement?|
Wes – Cincinnati, Ohio
|Nick Rogers|| Nick, I just got through re-reading “Focused on the Top” about the 1990 GT National Championship Team, and one thing that stuck out was how that defensive unit became so close knit. Do you think you guys will be slapping helmets with 6 & 7 guys flying around the ball like Tiggle, Coleman, and Clay, and how do you as a leader set that tone for everyone else?|
Chris – Atlanta, Ga.
